Here I find your printer is not a network printer hence directly accessing is not possible . You need to configure the printer to one of the PC and share the printer access rights . Then take a another PC and search for the computer name ed : \\resdc When you find the PC double click and you shall find the printer .Click on thee printer and connect.
Connect your internet connection to the port on the router
then connect your laptop and desktop to the router.
if you have a user name and password enter these in the router settings
everything should work
I am guessing this VPN is something work related and not a VPN you setup yourself?? If that is the case your company's VPN access will not allow you to pass from there network back to yours which is why you are unable to print to your local home printer when connected to VPN. You might could run it by your IT staff and see if they will allow connection and help you set it up. If not then simply email the docs to yourself and then print them out after you are finished using VPN connection.
Are they both under the same network? Can the pc find the laptop under network connections and vice versa? If not, then right-click my computer, go to properties, go to the tab 'Computer Name' click on the button change, and make it part of a workgroup of your choice of name. Do this for both making them part of the SAME workgroup. Then, make your printer shared under that workgroup.
